Fernando's Cafe and Cantina

About us

A family-oriented Mexican restaurant serving authentic Sonoran-style Mexican recipes.  Fernando’s is locally owned and operated by Mitch & Carole Tempus, both have been in the foodservice industry for over 30 years.

In 1993, Fernando's opened its 1st location at 114th and Dodge, a year later a 2nd location was opened at 75th & Pacific. Each restaurant offers a unique experience with the 114th and Dodge location offering a party room for up to 100 people.  The 75th and Pacific location offers outdoor dining on its spacious covered deck overlooking Pacific Street. 

Fernando’s made-from-scratch sauces, seasoned meats, and signature recipes have become known across the state.  Our award-winning margaritas and Sonoran food are rooted from Jalisco, Mexico. No passport required; our customers tell us our Pico de Gallo with fresh-baked flour chips couldn't be tastier.

All our food is prepared fresh daily, using locally sourced ingredients as often as possible. Sonoran cuisine is known for rich and varied flavors without the spiciness. You want to spice it up? Add our famous hot sauce, a special mix of peppers, chiles and tomato sauce.

Come for the food, come back for the total experience! Fresh and authentic recipes, served in a welcoming atmosphere. Fernando's mission and promise to you!
